U.S. skier Gus Kenworthy wants to bring home stray dogs from Sochi
USA Today

After finishing second in the slopestyle final on Thursday, U.S. skier Gus Kenworthy is now turning his attention to helping a family of stray dogs.

Along with the silver medal Kenworthy will be taking back to Colorado, the 22-year-old also wants to take home a mother dog and her four puppies found at the Sochi Olympics.

"There's a family of stray dogs that are living outside the Gorki Media Centre and I'm doing all that I can to try and bring them back with me," he said.

A dog-lover, Kenworthy would like to keep one of the puppies for himself, and has received “an influx of messages from people, everybody is asking if they can have one of the puppies, or the mom."

Animal activists have been scrambling to help stray dogs and cats in Sochi after a local company announced they would be killing strays before the Olympic games.
